Book of Songs

The pulse of the earth
is quickening.

Old trees creating
new leaves each spring.

Returning warblers

open their book of songs.

Every April our inheritance
is renewed.

Time again to celebrate

victory over winter.

Old trees with new creation
in their branches.

Holding birds that sing

with triumph in their songs.
